Speed Reading: Silver-Age Guest Stars, Action Figures, Van Sciver and More

Victoria Wayne comments on Captain Boomerang’s first appearance

Crimson Lightning has finished reviewing the entire 1990-1991 Flash TV series, and now presents a round-up of Live Action: The Worst.

Silver Age Comics looks at Barry Allen’s childhood sweetheart, future actress Daphne Dean, as The Other Woman. (She returned a few times in the Bronze Age, including the 4-part story that introduced the Golden Glider.)

Newsarama has a video interview with Todd Dezago, former Impulse writer, in which he talks about Perhapanauts.

DCU Classics Flash Action FigurePOE Ghostal reviews the new DCU Classics Barry Allen action figure.

Geek Stuff Daily looks at the history of the Flash.

Ethan Van Sciver’s weekly column is up to #11, and at least this week he’s renamed it from “Your Time Is Now Mine” to “Hope, Understanding and Compassion.” He links to a discussion thread his wife Sharis started about her experience with a dog rescue gone wrong earlier this week:

This was the worst day of my life. I don’t blame the dog, and I’m especially grateful for Officer Guardian Angel this morning, and the fact that it was ME that was bitten, not a small child, which is easily could have been. But I dedicate my entire life to rescue, and to see the dog shot, to hear it scream in pain and watch it die…this was entirely too much to cope with today.

Please keep supporting rescue efforts and animal cruelty legislation, folks, not the hysteria that causes people to deem all “vicious” dogs “bad dogs.”

There are no bad dogs, just bad owners.

Sharis also posted a link in the thread to her own blog entry about the incident.

    I met Todd (Dezago)at NYCC, what a nice guy! Seriously people, BUY HIS BOOK! I love it, sorta reminds me of Young Justice!

      I recently read the first two trades of Perhapanauts, and thought they were great. Sort of like Hellboy’s B.P.R.D. in concept, but light in tone. And yeah, the Young Justice comparison does seem to fit.

      I think the first arc of the ongoing just finished, so I figure I’ll pick it up with the next issue and get the third trade when it comes out.

    Unfortunately we had to start making scanposts members-only at the LJ Rogues community, due to the crackdown on scans_daily. Which is a shame, because it’s a great resource.

    Yeah I was actuaally talking with todd about Perhapanauts and YJ, and he said that he was taking some story ideas he wanted to use for that team to Perhapanauts.
